Hamster Types    Contents     Contact Us     Links






Chinese hamsters are probably the most uncommon, certainly when it comes to finding hamsters in pet shops.

They can be quite friendly little hamsters and often have a good temperament.  You can keep them in pairs but if they fight they will need to be separated.  They are quite small when fully grown and look a bit like a mouse except they don't have long tails.

    They enjoy similar food and living conditions as the dwarf hamsters and generally are very healthy.
